The JD Casten Papers


Published 2014


If you read Antic magazine you’re probably familiar with JD Casten’s games. JD Casten was a prolific author of Atari 8-bit games that appeared in Antic: Risky Rescue, Escape From Epsilon, Advent X-5, Biffdrop, Box-In, Rebound, and Maximillian B..


Antic also published the Casten Game Disk (for purchase) which included new versions of some games -- Risky Rescue Industrial Version and Biffdrop Nightmare version -- plus two other games: Nemesis and Crazy Harold’s Adroit Adventure. He also wrote Easy-80, an 80-column driver, and the unpublished Banzai Font Designer. You can download all of those from his website, www.jdcasten.info


JD also wrote several other Atari games that were never published -- including Operation Omega, the unfinished follow-up to Escape from Epsilon -- and he has graciously shared them for the first time, in this collection.


JD also dug through his archives to provide material for the games that were published in Antic. For instance: for “Risky Rescue” (his first published game) he shared his magazine submission and acceptance letters. For “Escape from Epsilon” (his second game in Antic): the complete map levels, screen-graphic component study, and graphic data notes. For his text adventure, “Advent X-5”: the original map (never before published), object locations key, objects & descriptions list, and commands list. Those are also included in this collection.


An interview with JD Casten appears in episode 9 of Antic - The Atari 8-Bit Podcast at http://www.AtariPodcast.com
